Siloam Springs, AR

The Ozark Suzuki Institute is set in beautiful Northwest Arkansas at John Brown University in the picturesque town of Siloam Springs. After an amazing inaugural year, we are gearing up for an even better Institute with a Suzuki Institute program for students, a 6-day Advanced String Program for advancing students, and Teacher Training offerings.

Daily Parent Talks and Recitals are offered at no additional charge, and all evening events are included in the cost of tuition, which is one of the lowest in the nation. We are able to offer many amenities at a low price, including a State-of-the-art Performing Arts Center, newly renovated classrooms and dorms, and cafeteria-style dining with excellent menu options.

Our emphasis on the Suzuki philosophy can be seen through our outstanding Suzuki faculty, family events which build our Suzuki community, and our many offerings for teachers, parents, and students.
